This app provides information about marine mammals in the Southeastern United States (Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands), including:
> Identification: illustrations, photos and physical descriptions (size, color, body shape)
> Biology: behaviors, diet, life history
> Habitat: distribution (including map)
> Conservation: status (protected / endangered), population size, and threats
> Viewing guidelines: never feed, pet, touch or swim with marine mammals in the wild. If you see a marine mammal, follow these viewing guidelines to help reduce disturbance and ensure you are following the law (Marine Mammal Protection Act). To view bottlenose dolphins in the wild, visit www.dolphinsmart.org to locate a tour near you.

This app is especially useful to anyone who enjoys dolphin watching, whale watching, wildlife eco-tours, dolphin tours and manatee tours. The app serves as an electronic field guide to marine mammals and provides tips for how to watch dolphins, whales, seals and manatees safely. For example, you will learn why it is not a good idea to swim with dolphins in the wild because of the potential disturbance and harassment and for your own safety. You will also learn more about why feeding a dolphin in the wild is harmful. Overall, you will learn how to watch marine mammals without disturbing them, which will allow you to see and enjoy all their natural behaviors.
